Submission + - Foreign data unsafe from US Patriot Act (

natecochrane writes: "The world's No.2 law firm warns non-US businesses their data is unsafe from costly and invasive raids by American law enforcement even if they host their data in their own countries. The wide interpretation of the USA Patriot Act ensures US cops can legally demand data from almost anyone, anywhere for any reason and countries and their citizens are largely powerless to resist. The advice has resonance with the arrest this week of Kim "Dotcom" on alleged copyright violations in the US."
